3D Printed Bristle Dress #WearableWednesday

Bristle Dress

This 3D printed dress was worn for the first time by Ica Paru at a Brooklyn photo shoot, states Bits and Pieces from the Embedded Design World. For Francis Bitonti, the designer, it was the first time witnessing it on a person.

“The computer is able to visualize everything accurately, I don’t really feel the need to do fittings,” Francis Bitonti told the official MakerBot blog.

The top of the dress appears like a lovely bleached algae moving upward. while the skirt suggests lace-like origami. It was printed on a MakerBot — popular amongst the DIY community.

The Bristle Dress was printed using MakerBot Flexible Filament and MakerBot Natural PLA Filament, with fake rabbit fur lining the tessellated skirt.

The best part about this dress is that you can make one, too. Just hurry to your nearest makerspace and pull up the dress files on Thingiverse. On second thought, don’t rush; the files take a total of 295 hours to print. But isn’t fashion worth it? We think you should make one just because it represents the open source movement creeping into the fashion world. Wear it for the cause.


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
